Pattern Re-release | Pumpkin Pal Bib

What’s October without a mass influx of pumpkins!! And today I’m going to share another one with you with my Pumpkin Pal Bib. A quick and easy pattern to whip up for any little pumpkin babes!

Something I’ve not been the greatest at doing is keeping up with re-releasing designs where the pattern rights have come back to me. I think today’s pattern is possibly one of the oldest I’d not previously re-formated! Originally featured in the 2017 October edition of I Like Crochet magazine it’s only taken me XX amount of years to finally sort it out – opps!

It’s now been updated for 2023 with availability in both UK and US crochet terminology.

But let me tell you about the pattern; designed for easy make-ability this jack-o’-lantern style baby bib is just perfect for Halloween. It doesn’t take long to make and you could easily hook one or two up in time for 31 October.

For this bib I original used Garnstudio Drops Cotton Paris (100% Cotton; 82 yards, [75 meters 110 meters]/50 grams) with a 3.75mm (US size F/5) hook but any Aran / Worsted weight cotton would work.

For your bib you need at least four colours I used; colour number 13 Orange (A), 2 balls; colour number 43: Green (B), 1 ball; colour number 16: White (C), 1 ball; colour number 15: Black (D), 1 ball. Other than that you would need some stitch markers and a yarn needle to sew all the pieces together.

Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
